Dentyl Mouthwash and CPC

All Dentyl mouthwashes contain Cetylpyridinium Chloride (CPC), a powerful antimicrobial which eliminates bacteria.

The Dentyl Difference

Dentyl Mouthwash has a unique formulation that combines the powerful antimicrobial Cetylpyridinium Chloride (CPC) with Isopropyl Myristate (IPM) oil to produce superior results.

Research shows that an oil-in-water solution enhances the performance of the antimicrobial agent by prolonging its release over a period of time.

Oil and Water

When the bottle is still, the two solutions can be seen as separate layers. This is because IPM is an oil and the difference in density helps it sit on top of the water-based CPC solution.

When shaken, the two liquids combine to activate. Unlike other mouthwashes, this unique formulation physically lifts and removes plaque and bacteria from the mouth, which you can see instantly when you #SpitItOut.

Dentyl Mouthwash is the only mouthwash on the market to contain both CPC and IPM, providing longer-lasting protection for the mouth.

How Does Dentyl Mouthwash Work?

CPC is a common anti-microbial agent found in antiseptic sprays, mouthwashes and some brands of toothpaste. It works by disrupting the fatty outer layer of the bacteria. Research has shown that when CPC is mixed with an oil such as IPM, it is much more effective. The explanation for this is due to the hydrophobic properties of the oil.

Because the oil in the solution will not fully dissolve in water, it sticks to the surfaces of microbes. This does two things:

  1. It allows the antimicrobial agent (CPC) more time to work
  2. It stops the microbes from sticking to the teeth.

This is how Dentyl Mouthwash reduces plaque by over 60% and removes 99.9% of oral bacteria from the mouth.

Antimicrobial Mouthwash

Removing plaque and other microbes in the mouth is important for oral hygiene. Through daily use of an antimicrobial mouthwash like Dentyl Mouthwash, you can:

  • Protect your teeth from decay by stopping plaque from building up around the teeth
  • Improve gum health by up to 63%
  • Reduce bad breath by minimising oral sulphides generated in the mouth by bacteria
  • Slow bacterial growth in the mouth, as the CPC continues working for up to 12 hours.
